On Wednesday, November 8 at 4:30pm, Gracie Award-winning Cuban journalist Liz Oliva Fernández will present two new documentary films, Uphill on the Hill and Hardliner on the Hudson, produced by independent U.S.-based media outlet Belly of the Beast.


The two documentaries expose the economic and political interests driving U.S. policy toward Cuba under the Biden administration, which has mainly kept intact Trump’s “maximum pressure” sanctions on Cuba, fueling an unprecedented wave of migration from the island.


These public screenings of the two new documentaries filmed in the U.S. about U.S. policy toward Cuba under the Biden administration are the first films in which a Black Cuban journalist living in Cuba confronts mostly white Cuban-American politicians and decision-makers in the US about policies that disproportionately impact Black Cubans on the island.


Moderated by Dr. Shawn McDaniel, and sponsored by the Center for Latinx and Latin American Studies, the Department of History, the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures, and the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity, this event will feature an open Q&A for audience engagement after the viewing of the films.


Join this vital conversation and come watch the films at Stauffer Science Lecture Hall 200. Snacks and refreshments will be provided!
